LISA Capture Sources: Approximate Waveforms, Signal-to-Noise Ratios, and Parameter Estimation Accuracy

Captures of stellar-mass compact objects (COs) by massive ($\sim 10^6 M_\odot$) black holes (MBHs) are potentially an important source for LISA, the proposed space-based gravitational-wave (GW)… Expand

TOPICAL REVIEW: Gravitational self-force in extreme mass-ratio inspirals

- L. Barack
- Physics
- 12 August 2009

This review is concerned with the gravitational self-force acting on a mass particle in orbit around a large black hole. Renewed interest in this old problem is driven by the prospects of detecting… Expand

Confusion Noise from LISA Capture Sources

Captures of compact objects (COs) by massive black holes (MBHs) in galactic nuclei will be an important source for LISA, the space-based gravitational-wave (GW) detector. However, a large fraction of… Expand

Using LISA extreme-mass-ratio inspiral sources to test off-Kerr deviations in the geometry of massive black holes

Inspirals of stellar-mass compact objects (COs) into ~106M[sun] black holes are especially interesting sources of gravitational waves for the planned Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA). The… Expand

Gravitational Self-Torque and Spin Precession in Compact Binaries

- S. Dolan, N. Warburton, Abraham I. Harte, A. L. Tiec, B. Wardell, L. Barack
- Physics
- 3 December 2013

We calculate the effect of self-interaction on the “geodetic” spin precession of a compact body in a strong-field orbit around a black hole. Specifically, we consider the spin precession angle ? per… Expand

Gravitational self-force on a particle orbiting a Kerr black hole.

We present a practical method for calculating the gravitational self-force, as well as the electromagnetic and scalar self-forces, for a particle in a generic orbit around a Kerr black hole. In… Expand
